After Trump pulled out of the Climate Accord that would not let anyone speak at the Paris Conference who disagreed with their research, now according to Reuters, the conservative Berlin circle within the CDU is also calling for a softening of the German climate policy. In a statement, the group demanded an end to “moral blackmail” by climate research. The goal of limiting global warming to two degrees is not realistic when there is no hard evidence that changing CO2 levels can alter the natural cycle of the climate.
The effects associated with the melting of the polar ice such as an ice-free northern passage and new possibilities for fishing and raw material mining would presumably prevail over potential negative consequences. Before the Little Ice Age, Norwegian Vikings sailed as far north and west as Ellesmere Island, Skraeling Island and Ruin Island for hunting expeditions and trading with the Inuit and people of the Dorset culture who already inhabited the region.
In 1875, members of the British Arctic Expedition discovered two ancient-looking cairns on Washington Irving Island at the entrance to Dobbin Bay, in eastern Ellesmere Island. The possibility that these cairns were built by Norse voyagers is supported by the large number of Norse artifacts recovered from Thule culture Inuit sites in the Bache Peninsula region just south of Washington Irving Island. Surveys of the island have identified scattered boulders marking the location of the cairns, but the question of the builders’ identity still remains a mystery. This area was not always ice just as the Sahara Desert was once green and lush as evidenced by cave paintings in the area. Even the famous Sphinx in Egypt shows signs of water erosion from rain. It is believed that the Sphinx may have been a Lion built before the Egyptians who recarved the head. Naturally, many reject this idea because they limit their understanding to the cyclical nature of our planet.
Romans Landed in America and sent Ambassadors to China, and then there are the cocaine mummies of Egypt proving there was a trade route with South America. Academics may think they know everything without ever leaving their office, but they have been proved wrong time and time again. The book, Historia Augusta, they insisted was a fraud written by a monk around 600AD. Why? This covered the 3rd century and had 26 emperors in a short time period nobody had heard about. They proclaimed the book a fraud, Then two coins were found in Egypt with the inscription of a name “Saturninus” with one going to the Louve and the other is in our collection. Suddenly the academics were proven wrong. This was one of the names they had never heard of because this was the chaos crash in the economy with one emperor after another coming to power.
Then there was Heinrich Schliemann who discovered most of the famous Greek cities from Homer. The academics pronounced from their offices that Homer was fiction and not history again because he wrote 600 years after the events, and of course they never went to prove that pronouncement was true. Schliemann had the money and believed in Homer so he funded his own expedition. He set sail as described by Homer and discovered Troy. He then discovered a cash of jewels and put them on his wife to take a photo.
The academics were made to look like fools. So what did they do? They accused him of fraud. It was all just a hoax they declared much like they do with global warming again to anyone who denies they pronouncements. Heinrich went on to discover Mycenae, with the Lions Gate Homer described and then turned right to see if he could find the shaft grave of Agamemnon. He discovered the famous gold death mask.
The Mask of Agamemnon is an artifact discovered at Mycenae in 1876 by Schliemann and is considered the “Mona Lisa of prehistory”. The artifact is a gold funeral mask he found in in a burial shaft “Grave Circle A, Mycenae” and others believe it may be of an older ruler from 1550–1500 BC before Agamemnon.
Obviously, we are still learning about history and this is true about our climate as well. We must ALWAYS keep an open mind in order to learn. The moment we close our mind, the world becomes flat.
